He ex­plained that cricket ex­isted in Ar­gentina but they needed as­sis­tance to de­velop its stan­dard.

“We need your help to de­velop more pro­fes­sion­ally the sport of cricket in Ar­gentina. Be­lieve it or not, we do have cricket in Ar­gentina. We have an im­por­tant Bri­tish com­mu­nity liv­ing in Ar­gentina and they have a tour­na­ment; they have dif­fer­ent clubs and I as­sume we need a lit­tle help to play a lit­tle bit more pro­fes­sion­ally,” Pan­di­ani said.

He was speak­ing in the pres­ence of Bar­ba­dos Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Conde Ri­ley, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of KOMI, Ben Toppin and head of the Academy of Sport at Cave Hill Cam­pus, Amanda Reifer.

“This is not a co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment that is giv­ing you our ex­per­tise only. This is an agree­ment where we can get your ex­per­tise. Co­op­er­a­tion for me is a two-way high­way. West Indies cricket is one of the best in the world so we are here humbly to ask for help and at the same time to con­tinue work­ing with dif­fer­ent sports,” he said.
